Every day 10,000+ individuals – mostly slum children and orphans – are served life-sustaining meals through the Please Pass the Bread feeding ministry. For many, those meals are the only certain ones of the day.
Why We Serve
The primary purpose of Please Pass the Bread is to present the true Bread of Life – Jesus and serve food to the poor, thereby opening their eyes to understand that there is a living God who provides for their needs and cares for them deeply. Providing food to local established ministries alleviates an enormous burden on them, so that they can focus more resources on their calling to proclaim the gospel to the poor in their community.
HOW WE SERVE
We provide food and other resources to Christian schools, orphanages, churches, and ministries serving children and other neglected groups who are suffering from debilitating malnutrition. We work with established Christian, mostly indigenous organizations, that are already serving and have a track record of fruitful ministry. New feeding programs are prayerfully added, on a case-by-case basis, as the Holy Spirit leads.
We take accountability seriously. Each program is continually monitored to ensure their ongoing viability. The message of the Gospel must be at the center of their endeavors, and food must be distributed in accordance with our guidelines. Our long-term goal is to make the feeding programs self-sustainable through the development of micro-enterprises and agricultural development projects.
Who We Serve
We primarily serve those in desperate need in some of the world’s darkest and most neglected slums and villages. We seek to serve those no one else will serve, and go where no one else will go.
- Slum School Children
- Poor Widows/Elderly
- Impoverished Families
- Prostitutes and Drug Addicts
- Physically and Mentally Disabled
What We Serve
What we serve varies greatly from one part of the world to another. In Kenya for example, a meal may typically consist of Ugali (cornmeal) and vegetables, whereas in Haiti rice and beans are the staple. In each instance we strive to provide food that is both characteristic of a particular country, and healthy too!
We Typically Provide:
- 1-2 Daily Meals at Schools
- 3 Daily Meals at Orphanages and Nursing Homes
- Daily or Weekly Meals at Afterschool and Community Programs
- Family/Children Care Packages
- Prisoner Care Packages
Where We Serve

Numbers are approximate and change often. The numbers used in this page are based on data collected between January 2013 and June 2013. In rare instances the number of people fed are reported by families rather than individual counts. In such instances the number of people fed is estimated based on the average family size of that country.
